Portugal joined CERN 30 years ago. This event was coincident with the creation of LIP and the start of activities in Experimental Particle Physics in Portugal. It was also a landmark in the internationalization of Portuguese Science. In this talk we will follow the trajectory of high-energy physics and associated technologies in Portugal with emphasis on the recent projects.

The LHC Electronics Review Board was created in 1994 to advise the LHC experiments Committee LHCC on rationalization measures in the fields of design, manufacture and operation of electronic systems for LHC experiments. To this end, the LERB found appropriate to launch a series of topical workshops in order to allow for open discussions on the issues at stake. This paper recalls related...

ITER and future long duration fusion experiments, similarly to other large-scale physics experiments, demand a high degree of automation and high-availability (HA) for the whole plant infrastructure. Highly available systems operate seamlessly in the case of component failure, ensuring safety of equipment, people, environment and investment. Control and Data Acquisition (C&DA) systems for...

The Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) is a fundamental building block of many systems. We will address the trends and evolution of performance observed in ADC design over the last decade. Some of the solutions recently published in the literature, to improve energy efficiency and address the limitations found in advanced CMOS processes, will be discussed. Finally we disclose implementation...
